Out n About Design Center

In an economy where many businesses are being forced to scale back or close up shop, Out n About Floorcoverings has experienced growth. At the end of 2009, the owner, Darren Ashcraft, decided to move from his small showroom to a much bigger space and expand what he was able to offer his clients. Larry and I have worked with him frequently and were honored to be the designer and builder of his new showroom space. It was basically a large warehouse with a concrete floor. I designed the new space. Larry built it out, painted it, installed cabinetry and Darren and his team installed flooring, tile, and the display racks.
This kitchen display features colonial cream cabinetry, cappuccino base cabinetry, caesarstone countertops, and porcelain tile with glass mosaic accent bands. Hardwood flooring selection area.

These areas showcase the children's play space. The archway is finished in 3x6 tumbled travertine tile. The floor is a Tarkett vinyl made to look like diamond plated metal. The cabinets are cranberry and the countertop is actually chalkboard laminate.
Commercial grade carpet tiles are used as the area rug. Larry painted the shapes on the wall and Woodland Manufacturing created the patterned vinyl words for us.
These kitchen diplays feature laminate countertops with undermount sinks. I love that you can put undermount sinks with laminate. Genius!
Part of the carpet selection area.
The receptionist desk. I love the galvanized sheet metal and the way it ties in with the exposed metal pipes overhead. We also had the metal sign left in its raw metal state to coordinate with the industrial element.
The sitting area.
The tiled wall was built out to accomodate a flat screen tv and a linear fireplace that we filled with candles.
This is the bathroom featuring a black and cream checkerboard floor and black tile wainscot. The tile actually has a subtle damask print to it. The countertop is Cambria. I had Larry order these Tuscan Olive Island legs to fashion this sink base. Per code, we needed to access the workings under the sink and I didn't like the way they looked exposed. I fashioned the skirt to fit in between the base legs so that the water heater and pipes would be accessible.
Something that has been installed since I took these pictures, is a leather and cork striped floor in the office. It is very cool and I will need to get some pics soon.
